PRADU Program

 Baker: Permit-Ready Accessory Dwelling Unit

Report: state needs 1.1 million homes over 20 years; PRADU is option

The Washington State Department of Commerce released its final housing needs projection last week. The projection shows the state needs to add 1.1 million homes over the next 20 years to keep pace with the population growth. Additionally, more than half of the new homes need to be affordable for residents at the lowest income levels. The projections are based on 2020 census data and the Office of Financial Management’s population projections.

One option the city has developed is the award-winning Permit Ready Accessory Dwelling Unit (PRADU) program. PRADU allows homeowners to add independent residential units on their lots. These units have a kitchen, sleeping area, and bathroom. They can be used as rental properties or to house family members.

Our Community & Economic Development Department has simplified the process with several pre-approved models, each with different architectural styles and floor plans. Applicants utilizing our pre-approved plans will work one-on-one with staff to design their ideal site plan and go through an expedited review process. These significant cost savings can be applied toward construction.

Professional tradespeople and companies can now register their services with the program. The PRADU Program Professional Services Roster is open to all construction professionals. More information and the form are on our website. The city does not endorse, recommend, or have any involvement in selecting professionals.
